Recyle your pens

BIC® and TerraCycle collect used writing instruments!

In 2011 BIC, in partnership with TerraCycle, launched a programme to recycle all used writing instruments, whether or not they are BIC® branded, turning them into new useful products such as benches, pencil pots, etc. Both free and voluntary, this programme enables schools who are willing to participate the opportunity to launch a collection in their establishments.

This initiative is not only a way to raise awareness and take responsible action for the environment but it’s also a charitable gesture where 2p per writing instrument is collected and donated to a charity. The charity is chosen by the collecting team, or the money can be donated directly to finance an educational project.

Getting involved with BIC and TerraCycle is simple: volunteers from the community who would like to start collecting need to register on the TerraCycle website, where they will be able to download marketing material to launch and animate their collection stations (posters, prepaid shipping labels, etc.)
